A Chief Minister of a powerful state of India is in trouble, and his raison d’être is his Pakistani girl friend. It is learnt that the India’s security agencies have cautioned the Chief Minister about the friendship, and the woman’s interference in the state’s internal affairs. The movements of the glamorous lady journalist are being tracked closely by sleuths in New Delhi. Reportedly, the intelligence agencies tracked the Pakistani to a five-star hotel in the Capital. As it routinely happens, politicians and civil servants who contacted the women at the hotel were marked, and their names filed. Several state politicians and civil servants are aware about the influence that the Pakistani lady has on the Chief Minister. For example, middlemen and favour-seekers meet her regularly. After detailed and long observations, intelligence officials are learnt to have clearly told the Chief Minister that if this intermingling continues, the state government may be dismissed by the Centre. The capital city of the state is agog with rumours of the dalliance and, hence, the CM’s advisors have initiated a damage-control exercise. But little do they know that love is blind. Who cares about the state government’s survival?
